Director, IIM Visakhapatnam

A distinctive feature of the New (National) Educational Policy (NEP 2020) is multidisciplinary education, a strategy that brings together multiple disciplines to create a holistic learning experience. Multi-disciplinarity promotes creative thinking, critical analysis, collaboration, and communication skills enabling the students to become well-rounded citizens better-prepared for the future, on the strength of holistic development achieved through exploring various facets of knowledge.

Further, NEP 2020 encourages inter-disciplinary studies (e.g., engineering/technology and management) across educational institutions providing the students with greater flexibility and choice in their studies helping them gain new skills and knowledge that they may not have the opportunity to acquire otherwise, in their academic careers.

It is in this regard three reputed Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs) viz., National Institute of Technology Warangal (NITW), Indian Institute of Information Technology, Design and Manufacturing, Kurnool (IIITDMK) and Indian Institute of Management Visakhapatnam (IIMV), all Institutions of National Importance (INIs), are coming together to provide the BTech and MTech students of the Participating Technical Institutions (PTIs) to pursue the prestigious IIMV MBA program.

Offered in an easy-to-pursue hybrid mode, the program will equip the students with better capacities and competencies and thus with wider choice of and more attractive career options. 

IIMV places on record its deep gratitude for NITW and IIITDMK, for their partnership in this exciting endeavour, a unique initiative that contributes to a brighter future for the students.
